Unheardof has been serving quietly elegant and eclectic cuisine to Edmontonians for 30 years. Our menu, which changes regularly, is increasingly local, regional and seasonal - a balance between the familiar and the innovative. We do our best to accommodate most dietary needs - celiac, vegetarian, and heart healthy. We are celebrating our 30th anniversary all year long, partnering with the Edmonton Food bank with our dollar a diner program and giving everyone who orders our regularly priced prix fixe menu a 30 in 30 certificate ($30 off a regularly priced entree within 30 days). Order a la carte or prix fixe (tapas, any starter, sorbet, any entree, any dessert) at $70 per guest. Arrive by 6pm (and if your table is available for rebooking by 7:30 pm, that price becomes an amazing $55) Plus there is no better spot to plan your special function - business or personal. We have two private dining rooms and decades of experience in helping make your occasions special

Was in town for 3 nights on business and picked Unheardof on the final night. Small restaurant with no bar scene. Perfect for couples or small business meetings. Started off with a meat sampler that included Kangaroo (that was a first for me), Bison and Venison. I could have eaten that all night. Finished it off with a beef tenderloin.... More

I retired from my employer of 45 plus years February 1, 2014. A very good friend of mine invited my wife and I to dinner at Unheardof Restaurant on the premise of the four of us getting together to celebrate my retirement. After several delays a January 17, 2015 date was set. She had told me that she had put... More

It is always fun to celebrate the New Year in a special way, and our meal at the Unheardof Restaurant was very special. The food was tasty and just the right amount. The atmosphere was relaxed -- with just the right amount of time between courses to chat and visit. At no time did we feel hurried. We began with... More

We arrived at 5:30 PM on a Saturday evening. Up until 7:30 PM every night you can get a full dinner with appies, main entrée and dessert for $55. It is a good deal as most of us had lobster and other goodies. All meals were very good to excellent and the service from our waiter was attentive and friendly.... More

Five of us went for dinner. We had a young man as a waiter and he was very good. All the dishes we ordered were excellent. A young lady assisted and she was also excellent however we were greeted at the door by an older gentleman who was very standoffish right from the start. When asked a question about the... More

The Unheard of accommodated all 26 of us attending a corporate event. The service was above average, as 2 staff kept our alcohol marinated group well appointed. The creamy seafood bisque is warm and rich with cream. The salmon main was cooked to perfect medium temperature perfection. There were zero complaints regarding either the food quality nor the service. You... More

We have eaten at the unheardof for many years, all special occassions and sometimes "just because". Service is exceptional, food always well prepared to our liking and the atmosphere is the best. No disappointments here!

This is our second visit to The Unheard Of, and again we were impressed. The service was top notch and the food delicious. We went the table d'hote route. Our starters were the seafood bisque and the scallop mousse--divine! Our mains were the duck and the chicken---very large portions and delicious. Dessert--Lemon curd creme brulee and white chocolate pumpkin cheesecake--a... More

We haven't been there in a couple of years and were astounded at the prices for what we received. I ordered a seafood bisque and a chacuterie plate (as did 3 other people at the table), the fourth person ordered their steak. the steak ($45) was pronounced very good. Our soup was also very good. It was hot and flavorful.... More
